Sustainability and Procurement

 

It's All About Responsible Sourcing

We invite all of our existing and future suppliers to join us in our effort towards a world-class approach to sustainable procurement. Our global supply chain and the thousands of suppliers who support our efforts are a critical component of the Monsanto vision to Produce More, Conserve More and Improve Lives.

Sustainable procurement yields positive impact for farmers and the broader society by enabling agriculture’s ability to produce more on the same footprint of land while conserving other natural resources. We are committed to help improve lives by procuring goods and services that promote excellence in environmental, ethical and social principles. The following five core values guide our sustainable purchasing efforts.

We encourage you to read Monsanto’s Sustainability Report around our global sustainability efforts.
